Specs

Robin Nixon has worked with and written about computers since the early 1980s (his first computer was a Tandy TRS 80 Model 1 with a massive 4KB of RAM!). One of the web sites he developed presented the world's first radio station licensed by the music copyright holders. In order to enable people to continue to surf while listening, Robin also developed the first known pop-up windows. He has also worked full time for one of Britain's main IT magazine publishers, where he held several roles including editorial, promotions, and cover disc editing.

  • Good text for basics, not for beginners

    I've been building simple websites (ie, static) using html and css, but wanted to go further with programming features, so needed to learn javascript and php. This is a good, thick text, but assumes you've done basic web design before. Worth the price.
